The world’s smallest diamond thief

23

There is a video of an ant stealing a diamond which has gone viral on the internet.

In the video, the ant is seen scurrying and pushing the valuable stone away from a bunch of notebooks as it almost loses control of the rock, struggling to stop it from rolling under some papers.

But the ant continues to scramble, appearing to steal the item.

The insect makes what it must deem an incredibly long journey – of just a few feet. The ant appears to persevere to nick the gem which is almost twice its size

Ants are known to be capable of carrying more than ten times their own weight.

This video emerged days after footage captured the moment a million army ants worked together to build a bridge.
